RWANDA has been invited to participate in the 2010 Sitting World Championships set for July 11-18 in UCO Hamilton Field House in Edmond, Okla.
The National Paralympic Committee (NPC) boss Dominique Bizimana said that the championship is a qualifier for the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.
“It is an important tournament because the top sides will qualify for the 2012 Paralympic Games,” he said.
Bizimana also noted that preparations will start as soon as financial support comes in from the Ministry of Sports and Culture (Minispoc).
Rwanda and Kenya qualified for the world event after outstanding performances in last year’s Zone V tournament held in Kigali.
